Grow Energy Efficiency Jobs: Tell House Energy Committee to Pass the LEEP Act!
HB 2534, the Local Energy Efficiency Partnership (LEEP) Act is in the House Energy Committee and must be passed by both the House Energy and Finance Committees before it can be voted on by the full House. Time is short to get the bill passed and over to the Senate. Energy efficiency is good for our economy by creating jobs, improving our buildings, and making it easier for our businesses and families to stay in West Virginia.

FirstEnergy Ends Bid to Sell Pleasants Plant
In a notice filed Monday, Feb. 5, with the Public Service Commission of West Virginia, FirstEnergy Corp. stated that it will stop fighting to transfer ownership of the Pleasants Power Plant to Monongahela Power and Potomac Edison, FirstEnergy’s West Virginia utilities. This is a major win for the 530,000 Mon Power and Potomac Edison consumers in West Virginia. This deal was bad from the beginning and the extensive evidence presented at the PSC proceeding made clear that the proposed transfer would benefit FirstEnergy and hurt West Virginians struggling to survive in today’s economy.

Surprise Fight at the PSC Over Appalachian Power Energy Efficiency Programs
In a surprise move, the West Virginia Public Service Commission (PSC) Staff proposed to stop all energy efficiency programs in the state. The Staff based their recommendations on a method of assessing cost-effectiveness that no other state utilizes. It did not take into account the benefits to people who participate in energy efficiency programs, only the benefits to those who do not. We need your help to protect energy efficiency in West Virginia! Contact the PSC today to ask to Commissioners to keep and expand AEP's energy efficiency programs. More

As of the time of publication, no decision has been made by the West Virginia Public Service Commission (PSC), so your input can still have an impact. More
